Overview

Biomedical science, although well established as a scientific discipline, is also a rapidly advancing subject constantly striving towards improving human health and creating a need for highly skilled biomedical scientists. 

Your learning in the  Biomedical Science (Hons) course at Edinburgh Napier University  is supported by our research teams, who are at the forefront of biomedical research and contribute to all aspects of teaching, both lab and non-lab based.

Short work placements are available on this course on a competitive basis through the 'Microplacements' scheme.

You'll gain the skills and knowledge to develop a career in biomedical science or progress to postgraduate study.

Course details

As well as developing an understanding of the scientific investigation of human health and disease, you will gain more specific knowledge of disease processes from the study of clinical laboratory specialities, such as cellular pathology, clinical biochemistry, immunology, genetics and medical microbiology.

This enables a biomedical scientist to understand the science of the causes, consequences, diagnosis and treatment of disease.

You’ll be equipped with the skills necessary to plan and perform a research project for publication and be aware of the need for good laboratory practice, health and safety and legal and ethical considerations.

You’ll have the flexibility to study different areas of biology and tailor the course to your own interests. You'll also benefit from studying in the heart of Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside which is rich in biodiversity.

The applied nature of this course encourages the development of skills that make you more employable including problem solving, research, team working, communication and IT. As well as specialist analytical and numerical skills, you will be able to collect biological data and communicate scientific information.

Careers

The skills you gain will prepare you for work in a number of areas, including biomedical sciences, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries.

Our graduates have gone on to find employment in the NHS and pharmaceutical research companies like Charles River.

The emphasis on research in this course equips you with the knowledge and skills required to continue on to postgraduate study, including possible PhD study at Edinburgh Napier University and a further academic career.
